Linux Version to choose when creating a new Virtual Machine using Oracle VM VirtualBox

I am about about to create a new Virtual Machine using Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager that will be used to run Start9.

I will try startos- first from Releases · Start9Labs/start-os · GitHub

If there is a particular flavor of Linux that should be specified in the Version drop-down list, please say so here. Otherwise I’m just choosing “Other Linux (64-bit)” here and will hope for the best.

Doubt it would matter, but you could choose a Debian flavor.

Agree with Stu - StartOS has a Debian kernel at the lowest level

Dave’s context is very much worth adding, that StartOS is based on Debian. If doing something with StartOS that at any time requires specific steps/instructions for a flavor of Linux, the Debian/Ubuntu/Mint etc way would be the way to go.
